About Berdeaux

Would be very happy to welcome you in this very nice house. Our guests say a "home away from home" and much more.

Berdeaux purchased this house in 2011

Why Berdeaux chose Port-en-Bessin-Huppain

The fabulous sea view and a house with a  « soul » (used to be 2 fishermen’s houses)

Guestbook comments from the owner

As soon as we walked into this home, we didn’t want to leave & regretted that we had only booked 3 nights. We wish we had booked it for our entire 9 day Normandy visit. It is exceptionally beautiful, perfectly equipped, comfortable beds, & sea/port view that we enjoyed every moment. It has the absolute perfect mix of old charm & modern conveniences and I would love to copy the decor in my own home! We loved everything about it.

Everything in Port-en-Bessin was a lovely walk to & from... cafes, bakery, restaurants, fish market, groceries, shops, literally everything. No car needed in town.

Laurence, the owner, was extremely kind, helpful, friendly & accommodating to our fluctuating arrival time.

Do not hesitate to book this wonderful home.

Perfect Base for D-Day Tours

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this very charming harbor-side home. The pictures don't do the views justice. We were two couples and this property was ideal for our purposes. Laurence was a perfect hostess and made our stay easy and enjoyable. We spent a week enjoying Port-en-Bessin, touring the D-Day beaches and Mont St. Michel (only 90 minutes away.) Bayeux is only a 10 minute drive and worth a day of exploring.

The on-site laundry facility was a luxury after 2 weeks of travel. Easy walk to groceries and a daily fish market across the street. There are loads of wonderful little restaurants within a 5 minute walk.

We highly recommend this property.

Bezauberndes Haus direkt am Hafen

  • 5 of 5

Wunderschönes Haus, mit viel Liebe zum Detail in einer traumhaften Lage direkt am Hafen von Port-en-Bessin. Das Haus ist sehr sauber und Laurence eine tolle Gastgeberin, die einem mit vielen Empfehlungen der Gegend gerne weiterhilft.

Das Haus ist mit allem ausgestattet, was es zum genießen braucht. Es gibt sogar Kinderspielzeug, Strandmatten und vieles mehr. Auch die Ortschaft Port-en-Bessin ist eine der schönsten in der Gegend mit einem guten Angebot an sehr guten Restaurant. Auch schöne Strände gibt es in unmittelbarer Nähe (mit dem Auto). Vielen Dank für die schöne Woche, Laurence
